Chris and Keith, our deepest sympathies on Bob's passing. He was a good man, and a very dedicated father. He never missed Keith's games and was always there as a good, knowledgeable coach. I was always happy when Ricky was on a team coached by Bob. I hope your family is able to find peace and comfort. Rick, Linda and Ricky Moses
